 Our Featured Guests

1. Ken Norton recounts the day 49 years ago that he with other San Jose State College students buried a car at the Survival Faire on February 20, 1970, a couple of months before the first Earth Day to protest the environmental destruction caused by fossil fuel based transportation. This was a local SJS effort 2 months before the nationally organized Earth Day to give a sense of the urgency felt by local students themselves.

About our Guest:  Ken Norton is co-producer of Women’s Spaces Show. In 1970 he was an engineering undergraduate student at San Jose State College and was a co-founder of Engineers for Awareness, to bring attention to Engineering students on the issues of war and the environment. He met his mentor Dr. William Hermanns at  the time which would begin a 19 year collaboration on Hermanns’ literary works. He would go on to earn his MS in Materials Science at Stanford Universtiy.  He also produces the Scent of Light radio vignettes broadcast over Radio KOWS in West Sonoma County.
